Incident Leadership and Decisions


                                            Incident Leadership and Decisions (ILD) Exercise

The ILD is an 8 hour session designed to allow the participants to actively work as a team managing a scenario that focuses on leadership challenges and the ability to make sound decision based on information and other stimulus.


This Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) compliant “Game” also includes some basic foundational instruction on leadership and some technical background on anti-terrorism tactics that will be needed as part of the scenario. Utilizing both computer aided information sources and a scaled mock- up of the incident location, participants are immersed in one of the fifteen Department of Homeland Security National Planning Scenarios. Participants will also be asked to produce some specific products and items during the scenario play.  Players are scored against a standard exercise and evaluation guide based on the new (HSEEP) core competencies (formally known as the target capabilities list)
